June 28 Women in Wine and Design All American Tasting Notes
I was once asked to describe my future in three words, without hesitation I said “SO MUCH FUN”. This is the only way to describe these wonderful Women in Wine and Design Tastings. I want to thank everyone for coming and for making each of these tastings such a fun and relaxed way to network. We had so many first time attendees who had the opportunity to talk and laugh with the women who have been coming to these events since we began hosting them almost two years ago. Ladies, thank you again.
Wolffer Estate No. 139 Dry Rose Cider
Well Hello Gorgeous! For those who base at least some part of their beverage decision making on labels and packaging this one is a beauty. But this is not just another pretty face, this is an elegant slightly sweet cider with a beautiful pale pink hue from the addition of grape skin extract. This cider is your next summer romance, enjoy with your girlfriends, a good book, or a great view!
2015 Hunt and Harvest Sauvignon Blanc
This beautiful Sauvignon Blanc leans to the tropical side of the varietal – she’s an easy going wine made to be enjoyed on warm summer nights. She pairs so well with fresh ingredients like the Fava Bean, Mint and Pecorino Bruschetta….Toss cooked fava beans with extra-virgin olive oil, fresh lemon juice, and a few chopped mint leaves, Season with coarse salt, freshly ground pepper, and a pinch of crushed red-pepper flakes. Spoon onto toasts. Top with thin shavings of Pecorino Romano cheese……Delicious!
2016 Banshee Rose
Anyone who has spent any amount of time with me has heard me say…”Rose All Day!” because I love Rose so much. This wine is another that you can simply enjoy on lazy summer days; with it’s low alcohol content and beautiful flavor from the blend of Grenache, Barbera, Pinot and Syrah. I hope Kara McClellan who won the Rose All Day necklace at the tasting does the saying justice!
2015 Folk Machine Pinot Noir
The tagline for this particular wine is “Drink Often and Pair with Anything” and it really does stand up to the saying. This wine is fun, elegant, pretty and most of all drinkable! I always think of Pinot as the wine for cusp seasons, when spring leans into summer and then summer leans into fall, Pinot is my go to red. The Pinot Noir grape is fickle and high maintenance, like me, maybe that’s why I like it so much!
